The group should remain closed unless I click the ">" symbol. This new behavior is very annoying. Groups should stay closed unless I explicitly open it. Using the screenshot below as an example, if I now move to "Groups 2" either with a mouse click or keyboard shortcut, it will expand, and if I then add a new adjustment layer, it will go into "Group 2". The expected behavior should be that "Group 2" remains closed, the new adjustment layer goes on top of "Group 2".
This strange behavior was not in photoshop 2015.
